Through the Window (WC, JM)

Through the Window 


(A look back at this year of 2020, via a series of poems that happened to be both written on feast days of Icons of the Mother of God, and also inspired by this year's classes and retreats.)



                                   Open 

                               your eyes.

                        Every coincidence

                       is the most awesome 

                                  miracle.

                   --The Lubavitcher Rebbe,

                     adapted by Tzvi Freeman,

                     Wisdom to Heal the Earth



                               When God 

                             closes a door,

                               He opens a

                                 window.

                               -unknown

 

           As 

      eyes are

      windows 

    to the soul,

   So Icons are 

      windows 

     to Heaven.


So 

    to 

       journey...
